ABSTRACT
We present results of pump-probe experiments on GaAlAs laser diodes indicating a 0.9-ps relaxation time associated with the device transmission. Subpicosecond, tunable near infrared pulses obtained by fiber compression were used to carry out the experiments. The data strongly support a model in which a nonequilibrium carrier temperature in the active layer is responsible for the observed signal.

    We report operation of a ten-stripe, gain-guided, phase-locked diode laser in an external cavity configuration. The laser radiates in a single narrow (1°) lobe. Such lasers generally lase in the highest order array mode, L = 10, which radiates in a twin-lobe far-field pattern. With one...

    We present a numerical model for a ten-stripe gain-guided diode laser array that predicts eigenmodes of order greater than the number of stripes. The existence of such high-order eigenmodes is confirmed by observing the near- and far-field emission patterns from free-running single-frequency...
